Radio frequency refers to the radio signals that vary from 3 KHz (1 KHz = 10ˆ3 Hertz) to 300 GHz (1 GHz = 10ˆ9 Hertz). In the field of consumer electronics, the area of interest is radio frequency ranging between 10 MHz and 10 GHz. The major components used in RF front communications in consumer electronics devices are mainly Receivers /Transmitters, Filters, Power Amplifiers, Duplexers, Antenna Switches, and Demodulators.
With RF developments, products that are enabled with internet protocols embark upon their existence and expansion all over the world. Developed regions such as Japan, China, and U.S had enabled this technology with changed architecture of communication devices five years back but developing nations such as India, Brazil, and South Africa have launched these technologies recently.
At present, most of the favorable frequency bands are occupied by cell phones or by government or unlicensed bands with limited transmission range. New devices such as tablets, head up displays, etc. have to rely on less favorable frequency bands, which have more noise distribution then the allotted lower frequencies.
